Great Tey Restaurants
The Barn Brasserie (as its name suggests) is a converted 500 year old, Grade 2 listed barn by the side of the road leading from Marks Tey to Great Tey, about a mile and a half from the A120 (5 minutes from the main A12) and about the same from Great Tey village. There is extensive car-parking at the rear, and there is full disabled access to the main restaurant and toilets, although not to the bar !
We have eaten there several times, and will go there many times again I am sure. The food has always been excellent, the service efficient and attentive without being overbearing, and the prices are not unreasonable.
There is an excellent A la Carte menu, with daily specials as well, and there are also "Choice" and "Value" menus which are set menus with a limited choice of dishes, although these two are not available at certain peak times at the weekends. The Choice menu is £ 9.99 for starter and main course, the Value menu is £ 6.99 for starter and main course. Since main courses from the A la Carte menu are normally around £ 9 - 10, these two menus are great value. We normally go on a Saturday night though, and are therefore restricted to the A la Carte menu. Do have a look at their website, which gives the current menus and prices as well as plenty of other information.
Favorite Dish: Lots of things - the menu changes every time we go, so there's no particular dish. The starters have always been tasty, the meat portions generous and the deserts excellent. The wine list's not bad either ! This time, Liz had Crab and Avocado to start, followed by Supreme of Chicken, whilst I had Carpaccio followed by Lamb Steak (both from the day's specials). We both had Cappuccino cream brulee for desert. The bill came to £ 55.70 plus drinks.
